Academic Board

IndexIQ's Academic Board is comprised of influential academic leaders shaping our industry today. Their research and insight has helped establish IndexIQ as a pioneer in the development of innovative alternative investment solutions designed to serve the needs of all investors.

In addition to providing ongoing research support and guidance for IndexIQ's investment strategies, our Academic Board was established to further advance two of IndexIQ's core missions:

  • Providing all investors with access to innovative alternative investment solutions typically reserved for institutional and ultra high-net-worth investors.
  • Addressing the shortcomings of traditional indexing through our Rules-Based AlphaTM approach, which combines the benefits of traditional index investing with the risk-adjusted return potential sought by active managers.
